Physical Access to the UBC Biomedical Branch (BMB) Library after 7pm, Monday to Friday, and on Saturdays & Sundays from September to June 2010-2011
This webpage is an overview of options for UBC faculty members, students or staff persons who wish to use the UBC Biomedical Branch Library, its study spaces or collections during the evenings from Monday to Friday or on the weekends during the Winter term 2010 to 2011. (Please contact Dean Giustini,
BMB Librarian, to get assistance during regular work hours.)
Physical access to the BMB Library is limited after 7pm to building pass-holders from Mondays to Fridays and all day on Saturdays and Sundays.
You can enter the building before 7pm, and are welcome to stay in the library until closing. However, you will need to find an alternative on the weekends because you will not be able to enter the building. Seehttp://www.library.ubc.ca/hours
In order to access BMB during these periods, you will need a swipe card and hospital ID badge to access the library. Only UBC faculty, students and staff working at the Vancouver hospital are entitled to hospital ID.
The UBCcard (or any other similar card) does not provide access.
A few other facts to access nearby libraries (not BMB after hours):
If you are a student, faculty or staff member at another university, you may belong to COPPUL (Council of Prairie and Pacific University Libraries) and can request a COPPUL library card from your home institution (but this card is for borrowing materials, not to access BMB library after hours)
Members of the public can apply for a UBC Community Library card. A UBC community card allows you to borrow books from most UBC libraries. The card costs a certain amount every year, and some restrictions apply.
